Annexation of Texas and Seperation [sic] of the United States [caption title]

NP: [1844]. First edition. 8vo. (24) pp. Printed "Free Eagle of Mexico" emblem on final page. Streeter "Texas" 1471: "The signature 'Lundy' on page [2] is undoubtedly a pseudonym as Benjamin Lundy had died in 1839. This pamphlet was probably published in the spring of 1844 when the Texas Annexation treaty was before Congress. At the foot of page two 'Lundy' says, 'The subsequent pages were published eight years ago, and the statements ... having been ... corroborated, their reprint will be appropriate to the present crisis.' The 1836 publication was Lundy's "War in Texas." There follow 22 unnumbered pages of extracts attacking slavery, drawn with some additions and omissions from signatures 19 and following of the 'Legion of Liberty,' Albany, 1843." Relatively uncommon and scarce in trade (OCLC locates 11 copies). Very good copy of this anti-annexation pamphlet. Original self-wrappers, stitched. (#4324). Item #57305
